Eleanor Almond Full Cup Bra
The epitome of old time elegance, the Eleanor in a rich almond colourway combines indulgent silk satin lined cups and band with a delicate ivory eyelash lace, produced by the same couture lacemaker as the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown. The classic shade makes the Eleanor a perfect choice for luxury bridal lingerie, or indeed for any special occasion, whilst providing a beautifully supportive fit for DD+ bust sizes.
Please contact us if your size is out of stock, as we are often able to make to order within 2-3 weeks.

Underwired full cup with side sling
The Eleanor bra is great - it provides wonderful fit and is comfortable after a full day of wear. In terms of fit, the band does not stretch with time, so don't order a tighter band than you need. There is more flexibility in the cup size as the top part of it is lace - you will just get more of a balconette type of fit with a smaller cup size, so it can hold up to some weight fluctuations.
I have been looking for such a bra for a very long time! Now I have finally found it :-) It is very beautiful and elegant. The craftsmanship is exceptional. Every detail - extremely well thought and executed. But it does not stop there. This is a very comfortable bra that you can wear all day without discomfort. The support provided is also great. Even for me, with my 36DD cup it is not easy to find a comfortable bra in world of bras seemingly made for A and B cups.
Since the bra is 95% silk, it might seem a bit tight in the beginning, but it quickly adapts to the form of the body and the material stretches out. In the beginning I was using the first line of hooks, now, one week of wear later, I’m at the second line (and here it is going to stay, I think).
The customer service is fantastic, probably the best I have ever had. I had a rather long exchange with Leanna who was answering all of my questions in a quick and competent manner, trying to understand and accommodate my wishes.
I’m definitely going to buy more bras from Harlow and Fox. Since one of my breast is one size larger than the other, next time I light try the 36E for the bigger breast or order a bespoke with two different size cups - one DD and one E.
When you're full bust, it can be hard finding a bra that actually fits but is still beautiful and delicate feeling. The Eleanor is the solution! Not only is it designed to be supportive all day (it really is!), but it looks beautiful doing it!
Leanna was exceptionally responsive and attentive in making sure the fit was correct, and I look forward to collecting this bra in every color she makes!
Bra Fitting Guide
We do not advise the use of a tape measure for finding the correct bra size, due to the many variations in body size, shape and preference that a rigid tape measure cannot account for.
Instead, please follow our guide to ensuring the correct fit visually
The band should fit comfortably around your body in a horizontal line, fastened on either the loosest or middle set of hook and eyes.
Some women find that fitting on the loosest hook is best for them, so they are able to tighten it over time as the band loosens with wear. Others prefer to fit to the middle hook, to vary the fit according to fluctuations in size. Our silk bands have less stretch than conventional powermesh, so don't be afraid of adjusting the fit according to your personal preference.
If you find the band is riding up at the back, this is usually a sign the band is too large, so you may want to try a smaller back size. If the cup is fitting well however, you will need to go up one cup size whilst going down one band size - for example, if your 34E is too loose in the band but perfect in the cup, try a 32F instead.
If you find the band is feeling uncomfortably restrictive, try going up a band size, and down a cup size if the cup still fits well - for example, a 32F would then go up to the 34E.
If you find your straps are digging in, it can sometimes mean the band is too loose so support is being forced to come from the straps, so do check the band is fitting horizontally around your body.
All of our bras have gold rings at the back to allow rotation according to the width of your shoulders, and many also have them at the front for even more adjustability. Several of our bras have wide, flared silk straps to maintain the comfort of a wider strap with a more flattering shape. Lengthening and shortening the back elastics can also help with getting the fit just right for your body.
Wires should lie flat against your chest at the centre front, and contain all of your breast tissue within them at the side. If you find the wires are digging in to the side of your breasts, not lying against your ribcage, see if a larger cup size will work better for you
The cup should fully contain your breast, without spilling over at the top, or having loose gaping fabric. It is natural to have one breast slightly larger than the other, so if this is the case try to ensure the best fit to the largest side.
If you find the cup is wrinkling or gaping, try a smaller cup size.
If you find the cup is spilled over at the top, try a larger cup size.

Body Measurement Chart
This is taken at the narrowest point of your natural waist, around your bellybutton. Ensure the tape measure is parallel around your body, and fits snugly against you. Take your actual measurement next to your skin, not over clothes, as this is most accurate.
This is taken at the fullest part of your bottom, approximately 20cm/8" below your natural waistline.
